The Best Parts Of Dating Your Best Friend

After years of being treated like trash by boys, I thought were worth it, I’ve found someone who exceeds every expectation I’ve ever had on what a good man should be like. He didn’t ask me on a date within five minutes of talking to me and he didn’t make his attraction to me known. He approached me in a way I didn’t expect and swept me off my feet slowly without my noticing until I felt sky high.

This man quickly became someone I looked forward to talking to every day, someone I couldn’t wait to hang out with on the weekends, someone I confided in during my weakest moments and someone I could wholeheartedly call my best friend. I’ve always wanted a Jim and Pam/Monica and Chandler type of relationship, and now I have one. There are so many wonderful things about being in love with your best friend -- I couldn’t do my relationship justice, but I’ll share a few.

Your mutual humor is the basis of your relationship. You can’t have a serious conversation without one of you cracking a really stupid joke that makes the mood take a full 180, but you honestly don’t mind it.

Silence is rare. Conversation flows effortlessly even at 3 am when you both have your eyes closed waiting to fall asleep.

You appreciate each other at your worst and carry each other through your toughest times without having to fear that you’re “too much” or “not enough."

He doesn’t care that you snort obnoxiously every time he makes you laugh a little too hard, in fact, he thinks it’s adorable.

You’re comfortable stuffing your face in front of each other, (in my case eating all day after I run six plus miles) and you’re not sorry about burping in the middle of your sentence.

You have a built in Netflix binge partner and someone to share movie suggestions with, who will also expose you to some of the worst and best movies you’ll ever see.

Jam sessions in the car together aren’t embarrassing even if you’re the only one feeling the music. Especially when Justin Bieber drops an album.

Neck massages, back scratches and playing with your hair becomes a habit for him so you no longer have to ask. Thanks for that buddy.

The nick names you have for each other are so absurd but they’re unique to the ever so strange dynamic of your entire relationship. Nagini is not just the snake from Harry potter, and Eggnog is not just a seasonal drink.

Nobody understands your dynamic, but nobody needs to and that’s the best part. I’m lucky to be dating someone whom I trust with my life and someone whom I’m able to be the rawest form of myself with. I wouldn’t trade the weird looks we get from strangers when we walk around campus singing an acapella adaptation of "Baby Got Back," for anything in the world.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
